Despite passionate speeches by nearly a dozen Flagstaff Residents in support of a resolution supporting House Bill 2573 (Liberty Preservation Act), six of seven Flagstaff council members said they were not interested in moving forward.
The proposal for a resolution supporting HB2573 (a bill that protects Arizonans from sections 1021 and 1022 of the NDAA which authorize indefinite detention of American citizens without a trial or formal charges) was brought forward by council member Jeff Oravits. [snip]
Oravits says: “One week after Council voted for a Civil Rights Ordinance, they decided not to allow my Resolution to go to vote.
One of the reasons given, they did not have time to read the 2 page House Bill.”
UPDATE: The Flagstaff City Council issued the following statement on their website:
“Due to technical difficulties the first 1 1/2 hour of the work session did not record. We apologize for this inconvenience. Items presented/discussed during this time included: Public Participation, Item 10 and Item 6.”
This means that all of last night’s NDAA discussion in front of the council has vanished from the record.
